Reveal Day for Scrap That! May kit

Scrap That! is launching a kit club on May 1st and today is the design reveal day, so exciting! This kit is so full of beautiful papers and embellies. The 6 main papers are from the Glitz - Vintage Love collection, plus a few specialty papers AND 3 plain cardstocks. Then, there are so many embellies, Walnut ink, Stickles etc. included that I ended up with 5 layouts! Here they are:

"Tomorrow" is a layout of me the day before my wedding in the Bahamas. This layout is fully loaded with Prima products from the "Blue Velvet" May kit and the cream paper was a specialty paper in the kit too. I love the all the embellies so much!

Design Tip: Add Stickles to the centre of paper flowers as an economical alternative to gems.

This is another layout of me made with the May kit. My hubby took the picture when I was VERY pregnant with my daughter and didn't want my belly photographed anymore. The Basic Grey brown and white doily paper was a specialty paper in the kit that went perfectly with the brown Glitz paper. I made the white flower with plain cardstock. I will be posting a step by step tutorial of how to make it next week. I love that butterfly in the kit.

Design Tip: Make your own paper flowers using tea-bag folding techniques.

"1 more" is a layout of my husband and I with our daughter. After having two boys, I asked my husband for one more try for a little girl. It all worked out for me, LOL. I traced the BG doily paper shape before using it on my other layout so I could make this with it. The Maya Road envelope comes with the kit too.

Design Tip: Use walnut ink and a doily paper to make your own patterned paper.

"baby love" is my son at 2 years old holding his new baby brother. I have been waiting for the perfect papers to scrap this photo. The border is from the specialty paper included in the kit and I love the coordinating letters and flowers.

Design tip: Distress and ink paper for a softer edge.

The final layout, "us" is my husband and I the day before our wedding. I used the beautiful sketch in the kit as inspiration for this layout. It was a great way to use up scraps from the other 4 layouts too! The lace is real vintage lace in the kit bought off Etsy.

Design tip: Use an ink pad over a mask to create a unique page feature.

Well, I hope you like them and be sure to check out the Scrap That! community gallery to see what the other design team members did with this beautiful kit at http://scrapthat.ning.com/.
